Tinctures are medicinal herbal preparations in which herbal constituents are extracted in alcohol. Tinctures are taken by the drop or dropperful directly into the mouth or diluted in a beverage of choice.
Tinctures differ from essential oils in that they are extractions of whole plant material, and unlike essential oils, are not crafted for their aromatics, but rather, their medicinal constituents. ...Though tinctures can certainly carry both an herbaceous odor and taste!
Our line of Physical Blends support and nourish the physical body; suggested dosing 1-3 dropperfuls up to 3 times a day. They contain blended extractions of plants in an ethanol grain alcohol base.
Our line of Energetic Blends support the emotional/energetic body; suggested dosing 2-4 drops up to 4 times a day. They contain blended extractions of plants in an ethanol grain alcohol & brandy base. The ratio of herbal constituents to alcohol in our Energetic Blends are more dilute than that of our Physical Blends, in an effort to enhance and elevate the more subtle energetics of the plants over their more direct effects on our physical body...somewhat like a flower essence or homeopathic dilution.
